Comedy about William Shakespeare as he starts to make a name for himself in London while also trying to be a good husband and father for his family in Stratford-upon-Avon.
The plague leads Will and his friends to escape to the family home in Stratford. On the way, they meet three witches who have some surprising predictions to make about Will's future, leading to a very serious case of house envy.
There's money to be made investing in cargoes from the New World: but while Marlowe invests in tobacco and potato products, Will would rather invest in building a new theatre. When Will's savings go missing he's forced to make a rather unusual bargain with his rival Robert Greene. Meanwhile Kate's frustration with the lack of roles for women leads her to make a rather dramatic intervention.
This week an African Prince is in town and Will decides that befriending him is the perfect opportunity to make his way into smarter social circles. But somebody is trying to turn Prince Otello against him.
This week, Will has to confront a demon from his past when his former schoolmaster comes to stay uninvited, much to the disgust of his wife Anne.
Meanwhile Marlowe is on the hunt for Roman Catholic spies - but he seems to be rather more interested in ale and pies.
This week Will's desperate to find a new idea for his next play, when it turns out his new patron only likes romances set in exotic foreign locations. But when Marlowe and Kate look like they might be falling for each other he comes up with an ingenious plan to help his friends and find some inspiration.
